After being on this site for about a year, I have found a few things to be true. One, you get what you pay for and two, there's a whole lot of oysters, but very few pearls. So, if my picture caused you to click on my profile, please read the next couple of paragraphs. They are my attempt to give a small glimpse of what you'd get if we actually met.
I'm a divorced Father of 3 wonderful children. I have been divorced for 8 years and have only had 1 relationship since then because I have been very selective of who I put in front of my kids and, to be honest, it's hard to find a quality woman (and it was almost 3 years after the divorce before I had the relationship). I play bass in my spare time with a couple of former pros in a loose rock band called KLS jams, I think. It might be different since we just fired our singer. We tend to change our name every time we record. You know how musicians are, a lot of great ideas, but very few hits. I just sold my motorcycle and I'm already hating my decision. I include this only because there is something different about people that ride or have ridden. I love watching movies and then discussing how Val Kilmer's last good movie was Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang. Seriously, I want your opinion about stuff like that. Also, I don't mind cooking for you if you don't mind helping with the dishes. Of course, if you've had a hard day, I'll clean them as well. I'm more than willing to clean up after a good meal that's been cooked for me. Hey, it doesn't even have to be that good of a meal. Also, I have found it necessary to include here that I also need backrubs. At 47, I still try to be 27 and I get tired and sore. It would be really nice to find someone that is at least willing to trade out massages. If you're good at it, I'll cook for you.
I'm unsure of all this talk about "no Games and honesty" on most of the profiles I've viewed. Apparently, most of you have been lied to by guys that were still married and just looking for "fun"...call him at home during the day, see who answers. Also, if you have 35 as your age... and you're not, stop. How can you start a relationship with a lie. Oh well, I guess you get what you advertise for. It's just like the guy saying "he's divorced" when his wife is simply on the other side of the house. I digress. I was saying that if you'll notice and have read this far, I have used my real name and not some fake, weird screen name and I have current pictures of myself that may not be that flattering. I have never been kayaking nor do I feel the need to strap myself into a plastic tube and hurl myself down a roaring river against hard rocks and I'm sure that most of those with that in their profile have only canoed.
I'm looking for a sane, well mostly, mature woman that gets my jokes and doesn't mind being embarrassed some of the time. I'm not saying I'm going to embarrass you, but you've been warned. Tall, dark and sultry is how I order them, if they're on the menu, but I'm usually happy with whatever is served as long as its medium well and doesn't complain when you bite into it. See, funny! I have a list of top 20 women I'd like to date, ask me, I'll show it to you (unlike Ross, mine is not laminated). I like women that are aggressive enough to know what they want and aren't afraid to ask for it (in some cases, demand it! or wrestle me for it!). I do, however, hate self-absorbed, poor me, why is every one against me "drama". Everybody does, but some people thrive on it like candy. It seems like those people aren't happy unless they're miserable...ironic. I do like people that have varied tastes and don't mind being adventurous...it takes bravery and commitment to a cause to search for what you want. By the way, I do have a flashlight if you want to go look.
p.s. In today's technology, take a new picture of yourself. Having one where you "almost" cropped out your old husband/boyfriend is about as telling as the one where a guy is standing in front of his dirty laundry that's piled up by his deer heads and rebel flag or half-naked, laying on his bed with a stupid look on his face. Also, if you are anywhere past 35 years of age and you're making some stupid face like your teenage daughter does in her pictures, stop. It's not cute when an 8th grader does it, so what makes you think it does anything for you.
p.p.s. IF you're are a drug user...do you openly admit it on a public site like this one? I'm sure you'll notice that they are when you pick them up since they don't have a car either.
p.p.p.s. If you have got to this point and have been moved to send an e-mail, do me a favor, use correct grammar, spelling and capitalization. Meaning, know the difference between your and you're and please don't use ur. I unfortunately work with teenagers that mutilate the English language with some version of text-speak that drives me nuts. Also, you're not e e cummings and every computer has spell check for goodness sake. What adult sends messages to describe themselves with spelling errors. Then again, that does describe you. Oh well.
